rest in peace the people’s poet: rik mayall 1958 - 2014
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he’s died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard. - Ade Edmonson
He always made me cry with laughter, now he’s just made me cry. - Ben Elton
- [Rik was] a brilliant comedian and someone who made everyone else’s lives more fun. He will be really, really missed. - Nigel Planer
I grew up with this man. I love his work, and I’m truly devastated he’s gone :(
You don’t need to explain a thing. But I understand, I had the same thing! Is it something you are concerned about and need to see your surgeon about do you think?
I totally understand your fears, and you need to find someone that will properly listen to you and understand what is going on. It is one of the hardest things I have learnt, and feels so confusing but moderation can be key for some. Others go cold turkey. You need to find the balance and not focus so much on gains. Start by cutting down on those foods, if you have say 2 bars of chocolate (or whatever it is) just have the one, and see how you go at teaching yourself and showing yourself how powerful you are. You are in control of what you eat, and you must do what makes you happy. Food can be toxic, in that many of us have such unhealthy relationships with food (or certain foods). It’s a long term lesson, and one that I’m still going through.
Oh I love you!! Thank you so much :) x
I’m sitting at about 79 and I’m honestly really happy. I have never had so much confidence and positivity in my life as I have these last 3 months :)
Yeah absolutely! It never seemed like a massive amount so I was never really fussed. In the grand scheme of things it’s a tiny gain from my massive loss, so I’m much more positive about things these days. :) x
No not at all!
I scrub my face in the shower with St Ives apricot scrub, and then use Frank body scrub all over (including my face). I use Johnson’s Face Care makeup wipes to take off all my make up every night. Biore nose and face strips for blackheads and Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud face masks :)
That is absolutely true! It feels horrible having that idea in your head and having reality smash you in the face!
Not really no, the surgery temporarily removes a hormone called Ghrelin which makes you crave these things. My cravings and desire was significantly reduced in that time. x
